Slinger Officer Hurt In Three Vehicle Accident

A Slinger Police Officer was injured during a three vehicle accident Wednesday night on Highway 41 in the Village of Slinger. Washington County Sheriff’s officials say a 56-year-old Horicon woman lost control on a slippery spot in the road and struck the officer’s vehicle, which was parked in an emergency turn around off the road. A 19-year-old Illinois man then hit the Horicon’s woman’s vehicle after it drifted into the southbound lanes of I-41. His vehicle then rolled over on its side on the shoulder of the road. He was not injured. The Slinger officer and Horicon woman were taken to local hospitals with minor injuries.
